The Milwaukee Brewers eight-game winning streak came to an end, falling 5-3 to the Atlanta Braves on Monday night at Miller Park.
Atlanta starter Matt Wisler held the Brewers to three runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings for his 8th win of the season.
The Braves got to Brewers starter Kyle Lohse early, scoring four times in the first two innings. Four of the Braves first five batters reached base against Brewers starter Kyle Lohse (5-10). Kelly Johnson clubbed a two run homer, the 20th home run allowed by Lohse this season. He allowed 22 all of last season.
Gerardo Parra led off the bottom of the first with his eighth home run of the season, cutting the deficit to 2-1 before the Braves scored twice more in the second to go up 4-1.
The Brewers entered the game averaging 14-hits a game on their recent road trip, but it didn’t carry over to their series opener at home last night.
Rookie Tyler Cravy pitches game two of the series for the Brewers tonight. Cravy takes the spot in the rotation vacated by Matt Garza, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder tendonitis.
